I need external storage for my laptop.  I am trying to get 2TB of storage after redundancy.  I would like to get the fastest access times possible.  My laptop has usb and firewire, and a pc card slot, so i could add sata.

what is the best arangement for this?  raid 1+0, 5, 6? also is there a single unit that you recommend, or should i get a specific enclosure and also a bunch of drives

I would like the whole thing to cost less than 1,000 dollars

i would like the device to have usb and or firewire in addition to esata or sata

size and power are not issues
